San Andres Estates Water 2018

Las Cruces Utilities will be flushing water lines in the San Andres Estates water system between 10 p.m. tomorrow night, July 6, and 4 a.m. Saturday.

The water lines will be flushed to remove iron and manganese that has accumulated. Homes and businesses may experience low water pressure while the water lines are being flushed.

The affected areas include: Valley Drive, from the Doña Ana Drain to Swartz Road; Valley Drive east to the railroad tracks; and Valley Drive west to San Andres Drive. Homes and businesses in the affected area may notice discolored water. Although the water is safe to drink, City officials recommend waiting for the water lines to clear before washing laundry.

The discoloration should disappear within 24 hours. If it does not, outside and all other cold-water faucets should be flushed for five minutes. If the discoloration remains, call the City at 575/526-0500 for assistance. The TTY number, for people who are hearing impaired, is 575/541-2182.
